Goal and DStv Now predict who the five game changers will be for Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool ahead of the Uefa Champions League final.

    Sadio Mane

    The Senegal international has been in red-hot form this season.

    Having amassed 22 goals in the Premier League, Mane has followed that up with four goals on this season's road to the Uefa Champions League final.  

    Mane has been a mainstay in the Liverpool line-up as he has played in 12 Champions League games this season, and he is one to watch.

    Harry Kane

    Tottenham could be handed a major boost with the return of their star forward likely ahead of the showpiece event. 

    Kane has been out of action for almost two months with an injury, and his return could be the spark needed for Spurs to overcome a determined Liverpool.

    Despite missing both semi-finals of this year's competition, Kane remains Tottenham's top scorer in the 2018/19 Champions League, although joined by teammate Lucas Moura with five goals.

    Roberto Firmino

    Firmino along with Mane and Salah have scored the bulk of Liverpool's goal netting 12 of the 22 goals overall scored by the Reds in this year's competition. 

    While the Brazilian has been relatively quiet on the continent in terms of assists, his opponents cannot take him for granted as he ended the domestic league season with six assists.

    Mohamed Salah

    The Egyptian attacker is undoubtedly one of the players to watch.

    With four goals to his name in the competition combined with two assists in 11 appearances, the 25-year-old is certainly a game changer. 

    Also having been a part of the squad which was beaten by Real Madrid in last year's final, Salah will be keen on redemption and hope to prove himself as one of the world's top players. 

    Salah watched from the stands as he missed the second leg semi-final triumph over Barcelona with injury, but as the club's overall top scorer across all competitions with 26 goals, his return will be welcomed.

    Lucas Moura

    A hero against Ajax Amsterdam. 

    With the stage set, Moura stole the show breaking Ajax's hearts but at the same time, for the Brazilian, it was finally him realising his potential.

    Much was expected from Moura, who was arguably one of the most sought after players a few year's ago, and with his stock now rising, he has the potential to add to its value. 

    A combined 15 goals in all competitions this season, Moura is certainly an exciting player and with his confidence sky high following a Champions League semi-final hattrick, the sky could be the limit for the decorated 26-year-old.
